Working notes from the Scandinavian Institute for Computational Vandalism

Containment

The minimal message of a photograph may be less simple than we first thought. Instead of it being: I have decided that seeing this is worth recording , we may now decode it as: The degree to which I believe this is worth looking at can be judged by all that I am willingly not showing because it is contained within it.

John Berger, Understanding a photograph, 2013.
